school lunches

Have you heard of the now-famous bento box preschool lunches?


Wendy Copley’s blog, wendolonia, features some various categories, but the amazing bento lunches that she prepares for her son are the main attraction over there. The adorable arrangements look so creative and so much more nutritious than my kids’ lunches….they make me vow that this year it will be different. This is Luke’s first year of all-day school, so previously he only needed a snack, but I always tended to overpack since I was unsure of what he would eat. Maybe if I step up the presentation (photo-worthy kiddie lunches!? sheesh!) I’ll have better luck with him. I speak from experience when I say that a half-squished pb&j in a rumpled baggie is not the most enticing thing after a rough morning of reading and math (thanks, mom!).


It’s hard to believe that school starts next week, and that my little boy will be a kindergartner! What do you do to make back-to-school go smoothly? Lunch ideas? Routine ideas? I want to get off to a good start!

    […] and snacks the night before. Nothing I’ve prepared so far is comparable to the photo-worthy bento boxes, but I’m still trying to figure out what they’ll like each day (that seems to change […]
